Hog Slat Inc.

Since 1969, the essential business activity of Hog Slat, Inc. has centered on the pork industry. Our founder, William T. `Billy` Herring, saw a need for concrete flooring panels based on his own needs as a pork producer on the Herring family farm. As founder and Chairman of Hog Slat, he oversaw the development of a company that became the worldwide leader in providing concrete slats, fabricated metal equipment and turnkey construction to the swine industry. Today, Hog Slat has expanded those capabilities to the poultry industry, and we support both our hog and poultry customer base with three major distribution centers and over sixty retail locations throughout the U.S. Our manufacturing presence has spread into South America and Eastern Europe, and we have developed new markets that are outside of our traditional, core agricultural market base for our concrete and metal products.

Hog Slat Inc. got its start in 1969, when Billy Herring was operating a farrow-to-finish farm near Newton Grove, NC, and couldn't find appropriate flooring for the nursery he wanted to build. So, relying on his ingenuity and experience, he constructed his own slats. Other producers noticed the quality of his product, called on him for help, and a small family business was born. Today, that business produces a full range of hog  and poultry farming equipment. Hog Slat’s corporate office is located in Newton Grove, NC, with regional offices in Iowa and Oklahoma. Our sister company, Georgia Poultry, is headquartered in Royston, GA, with additional offices located in Mississippi and southern Missouri.

Hog Slat, Inc. is a family-owned business engaged in many aspects of hog and poultry production. 

We are involved in :
     (1) turnkey construction of confinement type hog and poultry units,
     (2) the manufacture and distribution of hog and poultry equipment
     (3) the production of live hogs.
